|feline plaything "purr" [samarch012] - feline plaything|
feline plaything is a freeform "chill" project that writes music for you to semi-relax with in an experimental mindset. this is not to say this music is 100% ambient, because it definitely has a more jumpy and playful side to it at times. this album is like playing with a young kitten - sometimes it licks and purrs, sometimes it scratches and bites and jumps and hisses....... visit: www.geocities.com/felineplaything

|darph/nadeR vs. seetyca "translucence" [samarch034] - darph/nadeR, seetyca|
...from squeals of sharpening lasers-beam points in static-storm attacks (darph/nadeR) to tranquil washes of silver-shining masses that float over the cloudlines (seetyca) and then back again, this split album takes you to all sides and then stretches you over the edges.....as both projects take their signature sounds and recreate them in crisp new forms you will be wondering why it took this team so long to get this release together......

|boron jive leper - "theme for mister tungsten filament" [samarch037] - boron jive leper|
originally released to a limited run on 3" CDr in 2004, this release is a psychedelic journey that takes you through the mind of boron jive leper, the electronic madman! at times calm, mostly atmospheric to the hilt, and always the stuff of strange, twisting dreams.....this is one that had to be re-released - we kept it in the archives long enough!!! NOTE: this release is broken into four movements, but is one continous song...

|Leaving Earth "the Cosmic Abyss" EP [samarch047] - Leaving Earth|
Leaving Earth (e yard - USA, and the helmeticrononaut - Norway) have taken a turn from their previous work, and are here with a spacey, calm, ambient EP called "the Cosmic Abyss". This is what decaying gravitational waves sound like to planets. This is the sound of carbon monoxide buildup in a kosmonaut's bloodstream. It is the sound of mold spreading through an abandoned space station. It is the feeling of surrender upon facing the infinite blackness of space...

|darph/nadeR "'antiDISCO' Archives Vol. 1" [samarch044] - darph/nadeR|
darph/nadeR dug through their archives and, added together with songs from their SOLD OUT earlier archive release ("the path home" CDr, released in 2003), they put together this collection of unreleased/rare recordings from 2003-2004. what you'll find here are songs that were recorded for projects that either never surfaced or were abandoned. darph/nadeR felt these songs were worth sharing, and hopefully you will find this an enjoyable look back at some earlier work.
